Gerry Fialka & Will Erokan w/ Rock Ross, & V. Vale, 10/21/10


Published October 21, 2010


Oct 21 - Thurs: Beckett, Burroughs and Experimental Film at 8pm (730 pm pot-luck), free admission at New Nothing, 16 Sherman St (off Folsom between 6th & 7th), San Fran CA 94103. Media archaeologists Gerry Fialka and Will Erokan host this interactive multi-media event interconnecting Beckett's theater and Burroughs's written cutups with Soviet Montage theory, Finnegans Wake, the Hegelian dialectic, McLuhan's Menippean satire, thesis+antithesis=synthesis, hip hop and more. Live musical accompaniment by V. Vale & Rock Ross. Probe Samuel Beckett's mock-tragic heroes, their revelations of human destiny, and the poetic interconnections with McLuhan, James Joyce and Edgar Allen Poe's reasoning backwards, or "effects precede causes." Includes live readings and rare film clips. Why do the possible? "The confusion is not my invention...It is all around us and our only chance is to let it in. The only chance of renovation is to open our eyes and see the mess." -Samuel Beckett. Explore McLuhan's legendary review of NAKED LUNCH in The Nation magazine http://realitystudio.org/criticism/notes-on-burroughs/, Ornette Coleman's Harmolodics (he blew the sax solos in Cronenberg's film version), DJ Spooky, non-linear writing, Jean Genet, Terry Southern, cut-up collages, the writer as editor, "the algebra of need," and the Symbolists. This vibrant interactive workshop is a kind of social engineer's report on the terrain hazards and mandatory processes of the new electric environment. "Fialka's workshops are in depth communication of something extremely elusive - the history of the unimaginable - and his lively interpretation renders it useful." - William Farley, Award-winning filmmaker. http://www.laughtears.com/workshops3.html
